What error messages do you get when you attempt to start Windows?
Have you tried Startup Repair?
Have you tried System Restore?
Have you tried these commands from the command prompt (pressing Enter after each one)?:
Have you run these free, bootable diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
I'd suggest trying a repair of Windows - but you'll have to get into Windows in order to do that.
Most other options (outside of Windows) consist of a reinstallation of Windows and then reimporting your data.
Saving program files is darned near impossible.
There are programs that assist with this, but they have to be running when you install the program.
And the work involved in making them work again is huge.
Beyond that, you'll also have to be adept at recreating the registry keys used by the programs.
